Which? responds as Martin Lewis, Citizens Advice and Facebook launch initiatives to fight scam ads

Adam French, Which? Consumer Rights Expert, said:

“We recently investigated Facebook and found it was far too easy to get a scam ad approved and published on the platform, where it was seen by thousands of people before being removed – so any measure to get these posts off the site quickly is a step in the right direction.

“Facebook and other tech companies must work harder to ensure their millions of users are protected from scams that could see them conned out of substantial sums.”
